The Hair Trend That's Making A Huge Splash!

If I wasn't already bitter enough because I'm allergic to the delicoius and healthful food that is salmon and therefore can't eat even a smidgen of it, the beauty world throws another salmon-related no-no my way. Salmon Hair. It's a thing and it's beautiful. And alas, this brunette has no hope in heck of ever pulling it off. So what's a girl to do? Get over herself and admire the goodness on Instagram of course!


Would you look at that salmon hair, with its wondrous hues of pinks and peach, so reminiscent of the fishy flesh it is named after. 


What I love about this trend is that if you like the look of it, but aren't sure if you can pull it off, or if you're unsure that you're ready to commit to a full head of it, you can easily dip your toe into salmon hair first. Just add a little salmon hair to the ends of your tresses and you can test the waters before you dive in!


Hold on! Hold the phone! What's this? A brunette ombre salmon hair? Are you kidding me right now? Doesn't it look stunning? And would you look at that! There's hope that I too can get on the salmon train! 

So do tell? Are you a salmon fan? Is salmon your jam? Could you see yourself swimming against the hair-tide and rocking this colourific look? Chat away!

Wow, this look is nice, I couldn't rock it though!!

I'm all for unusual hair colours, but with the whole world of shades available, I don't think I'd try this one.

Hmmmm salmon is not my cup of tea. But give me a deep purple anyday!

Dark purple is such a gorgeous hair colour!

Me too. There's some gorgeous purple shades around.

It does look cute on the blond hair but on black hair it looks a little odd. I think it's because it's so hard to fade into the salmon so you get black then BAM SALMON!! Also you'd have to bleach the tips unfortunately if you want that colour to show :(

I'm thinking I'm getting a bit old for vibrant colours

Wow !! Not for me I am too old but go for it girls .

I'd do it if it wasn't permanent.

I once went strawberry blond for a Halloween party and it all washed out within a few days. Would love to do that again but non-permanent colours are hard to find.

So pretty! Especially the lighter pinks.

I'm not really a fan. The ombre look isn't too bad though.

I can appreciate the effort that goes into these types of hair styles but not something I would personally do.

Hmm I'm not sure I like the salmon in these; the cotton candy tones before the salmon yes, but the salmon doesn't do it for me.

Oh I really like theses tones but I can't carry it off as it won't look very nice against my skin tone.

Very pretty, but I imagine the upkeep would be significant. Colour fade would be your worst enemy with this look.

I like it on other girls but I don't think it'd look the best on me. If I was going for a bright color it'd be a purple shade.

The pink hair I've had went this shade on its own :P
